I took a lot of pictures and video using the Point'n'Shoot in my pocket. This in itself is not unusual. I resolved to make some sort of edited video out of the raw footage. Such resolutions are not unusual either. But yesterday I said to myself "David, either you go right home and edit some video tonight or you'll never do it."
Apparently I believed what I told myself because I did go home and I actually made the video. I rationalized the time as good experience using Final Cut Express - which I'm trying to learn. At 6 a.m. this morning, after nine hours of increasingly blurry-eyed video editing and musical composition (using old 30 Second Spots that no one but me has ever heard as musical source material), I completed a six-minute video. It has three sections - one for each of the stops we made during the day.
If you've ever wondered what I did Saturday, this is definitely the video for you. Enjoy. If you've never wondered about my doings yesterday, you can still watch. Just don't expect much.
